On June 17, 2017 Imagine Circus stilt walking fairies fluttered around the 13th Annual Greensboro Summer Solstice, parading with characters from Paperhand Puppet Intervention and costumed festival patrons. Later in the evening, Imagine Circus presented a fire show sponsored by Corrupted Arts and MC’d by Madelyn Greco of LivingBrush. The fire show included artful prop manipulation, mesmerizing fire dancing, and fire acrobatics! The mission of Greensboro Summer Solstice is to create “an experience for festival-goers that blends local artisans, performers and budding entrepreneurs with a little bit of magic, opening up imaginations to the possibilities in each of us.” We were grateful to be a part!
Traveling to Charlotte, North Carolina, Imagine Circus once again had a blast at Tour De Fat! Our hand balancing acrobat/contortionist impressed concert goers between band sets while our stilt walkers joined in the Fire Leopard hype, cheering on the Slow Rider competition, busting a move at the Dance Off, and adding to the overall party vibe! Collaborating with fellow Raleigh band, Jack the Radio, our acrobatic duo performed a unique set to live music and also wowed guests at a pop-up performance in the VIP lounge.
Teaming up with OBX Entertainment and Bearded Face Productions, the Outer Banks Visitor’s Bureau kicked off the Soundside Live Concert Series on May 25, 2017. The first of three Thursday evening concerts, this event featured national recording artists Red Wanting Blue, The Commonheart, and Tropidelic, as well as performances by Imagine Circus! Although the evening had moments of epic wind, stormy clouds, and a brief downpour, a double rainbow emerged and the show went on! Joining in the concert fun, Imagine Circus performers danced on stilts and performed acrobatics and fire dancing. We are looking forward to two more weeks of Thursday night fun!

Hosted by Cary Citizen in cahoots with the Town of Cary, Fest in the West brought a yippy ki-yay good time to West Cary on May 20, 2017 at USA Baseball’s Thomas Brook’s Park. Imagine Circus was glad to be part of the cowboy/cowgirl action with our western stilt walker saying “Howdy” to all the attendees. This event featured live music, local beer, food trucks, artisan crafts, and fun competitions including Hillbilly Horseshoes and a pie eating contest announced by Cary’s own, Mayor Harold Weinbrecht.
Spring is a time of birds chirping, seeds sprouting, and street festivals! In the past few weeks Imagine Circus has traveled all over the Triangle, enchanting festival goers and spreading circus cheer! On April 29th our fairy winged stilt walker and flora vine stilt creature roved around Spring Daze Arts and Crafts Festival, Cary’s annual Earth Day Celebration under the lush canopy of Bond Park. This free event featured over 170 artists, four stages, and over 15,000 festival attendees! Also on April 29th Imagine Circus visited Siler City, NC for Day of the Books or El Día de los Libros, a children’s festival promoting “literacy, the arts, early childhood education and multiculturalism.” All children who attended received free books! On May 6th Imagine Circus sent performers to three outdoor events– the 37th Annual Apex Peakfest in downtown Apex, NC, the Learning Experience St. Baldrick’s Cancer Free 2017 Fundraiser and the NAMI Walks Fundraiser in Raleigh, NC. Our acrobats, stilt walkers, hoopers, and living statues engaged with guests and added to the buzzing atmosphere!
Playfully celebrating spring, Imagine Circus joined Jeffrey’s Grove Magnet Elementary School on Friday, April 28th for their annual Global Carnival, a school-wide event for parents and students complete with cultural presentations, food trucks, fair games, bounce houses, and some circus flair! Prior to the event, a stilt walker roved throughout the school grounds, surprising students as she visited classrooms during afternoon dismissal. Once the event began, Imagine Circus’s winged fairy face painter and spring flower glitter hair artist adorned children with decorative swirls and hair sparkles! Later in the evening, our performers presented a 50 minute Aerial and Acrobatic Show, debuting our brand new Circus Gear aerial rig! Following the show, performers hosted an interactive hoop jam and posed for photos with students and adults. Fun was had by all!
